Anyway, the Monk website lists all sorts of phobias, alphabetically, so that you can browse through and pick out those strange fears belonged to YOU. I have picked out and listed the ones that most accurately describe members of The Source Family.
Telephonophobia: Fear of telephones. (So this is why everyone in my house looks aimlessly around when they hear that ringing sound??)
Plutophobia: Fear of wealth. (Oh yes, that would be the Hubby's secret fear...actually having enough money in the bank would freak him out!)
Pyrophobia: Fear of fire. (I only wish The Oldest had this one!)
Graphophobia: Fear of writing or handwriting. (Quatro!! Handwriting of a drunk, one-legged chicken with a pencil in it's beak!)
Astraphobia or Astrapophobia: Fear of thunder and lightning. (Darling Daughter ends up in my bed every time it storms!)
Frigophobia: Fear of cold, cold things. (Why I will never live any further north than Georgia.)
Alliumphobia: Fear of garlic. (More specifically, fear of Hubby eating a whole head of garlic. And then fumigating me out of our bed at night with his breath.)
Nosophobia or Nosemaphobia: Fear of becoming ill. (Pip...this one's for you, buddy! Wash all the skin off those hands, baby.)
Novercaphobia: Fear of your step-mother. (Ha, ha, ha. OK not actually the step-mother, but the stinking, disgusting perfume she gives out as presents. Right Sister?!)
There's more...oh, so much more I could list about this family of mine. But why don't you head over and check it out for yourself. Don't forget to watch Monk!
